  330: Number of scalar operations per second and per core : 3809121.83444626
  331: schroedinger:[~/cvs/bench] > 
  332: - recherche_type() did not convert huge integer in real. Now,
  333: 18446744072742037448 is converted into real as value cannot be stored in
  334: RPL/2 integer type;

  417: by a new feature in glibc.
  418: * Thu Apr 14 2011 BERTRAND JoŽl <rpl@systella.fr> rpl-4.0.22 (RPL/2)
  419: - by default, RPL/2 uses "NONE" IMPLICIT when it's started in batch mode and
  420: "ALL" IMPLICIT when it runs in interactive mode;
  421: - when "NONE" IMPLICIT is set, STO intrinsic raises an error when it is used
  422: to create or modify a global variable. Now, with "NONE" IMPLICIT, you have
  423: to use SAVE to manipulate global variables;
  424: - replace erroneous TAB by TBL in evaluation() and formateur_fichier()
  425: subroutines;
  426: - fix major memory access violation in evaluation subroutine. Only occurs
  427: when 'X(i,j)' is evaluated on a matrix and when (i,j) points out of bounds;
  428: - fix major bug in evaluation subroutine. 'X(i)' returns execution error
  429: when X was a vector or a table.

  459: * Thu Sep 23 2010 BERTRAND JoŽl <rpl@systella.fr> rpl-4.0.19 (RPL/2)
  460: - due to a very strange bug I've only seen on Solaris, ptmalloc3 is removed.
  461: Solaris libresolv randomly uses ptmalloc3 and system allocator and makes heap
  462: corruption. As internal memory management have been improved, a best fit
  463: allocator like ptmalloc3 is not required anymore;
  464: - gnuplot is upgraded to 4.4.1;
  465: - deadlock is fixed in signal handlers: same mutex was used in standard
  466: subroutines (without protected sections by sigprocmask() or pthread_sigmask())
  467: and signal handlers. A new signal handler specific mutex is added;
  468: - minor bug is fixed in evaluation() subroutine. In { X 0 PI }, PI is a function
  469: that has to be evaluated by ->NUM;
  470: - rplfile build process is modify to be sure that rplfile is not modified
  471: after rpl build stage (to be sure that rplfile checksum is not modified after

  476: ABORT now works on eComStation;
  477: - sqlite is upgraded to 3.7.2;
  478: - bug is fixed in software interrupts. When both process have different PID,
  479: parent process was not interrupted if it is not group master process. To fix
  480: this bug, SIGINJECT signal is not sent by child process but by control thread
  481: in parent process;
  482: - minor bug is fixed in data injection (POKE) that does not work as expected
  483: when child process is protected by NRPROC.
  484: * Thu Aug 26 2010 BERTRAND JoŽl <rpl@systella.fr> rpl-4.0.18 (RPL/2)
  485: - --enable-sysv-sems is added to configure script to use SystemV semaphores
  486: functions instead of POSIX functions. This function is disabled or forced on
  487: systems that does not provide correct POSIX or SysV semaphores subsystem;
  488: - a dirty but not quick patch is written to workaround broken siginfo
  489: structures. This patch has been successfully tested. It uses a segment of
  490: shared memory (Posix or SysV) and some semaphores (Posix or SysV) by process
  491: (Unix PID);
  492: - some OpenBSD's hacks are added;

  508: - sqlite is upgraded to 3.7.0.1;
  509: - units is upgraded to 1.88;
  510: - another major bug is fixed in the same variable creation subroutine.
  511: Level 0 and 1 variables adresses were swapped when a global variable masked
  512: a name of RPL/2 routine;
  513: - major bug is fixed in global variable creation subroutine. When a global
  514: variable was created and when a local variable existed with the same name,
  515: computed address of global variable was wrong;
  516: - src/Makefile.am is modified to avoid a bug on several systems. libptmalloc3
  517: is forced in front of all libraries.
  518: * Tue Jul 13 2010 BERTRAND JoŽl <rpl@systella.fr> rpl-4.0.17 (RPL/2)
  519: - BACKTRACE intrinsic is added;
  520: - major bug is fixed in SELECT/DEFAULT/END conditional structure. Only occurs
  521: when this structure is included in IFERR/THEN/END structure and when an error is
  522: caught;
  523: - major bug is fixed in analyse() subroutine. When evaluation() returned error
  524: in a compiled program, analyse() caught this error twice and randomly aborted
  525: with a segmentation error;
  526: - TRIM and TOKENIZE replace both '\n' and '\t' by regular spaces;
  527: - ATEXIT subroutine begins with an implicit CSTOP to avoid multiple stop
  528: signals;
  529: - memory leak is fixed in ROW+. It only occurs when a row is added to an empty
  530: matrix.
  531: * Thu Jun 24 2010 BERTRAND JoŽl <rpl@systella.fr> rpl-4.0.16 (RPL/2)

  544: * Sun May 23 2010 BERTRAND JoŽl <rpl@systella.fr> rpl-4.0.15 (RPL/2)
  545: - all '-' are replaced by '_' in random generator list;
  546: - minor memory leak is fixed in OPEN intrinsic (socket);
  547: - major bug is fixed in IFERR structure. Only occurs in compiled program;
  548: - major bug is fixed in copie_objet() and liberation(). Only concerns
  549: format in FCH (file descriptor) and SCK (socket descriptor);
  550: - debug routines are improved;
  551: - PROCID is added;
  552: - MEMLOCK and MEMUNLOCK are added. MEMLOCK forces a process to remain in memory
  553: and to not use swap;
  554: - major bug is fixed in sql support. SQL connections were closed in all chield
  555: process;
  556: - standard allocator (malloc()/free()) is replaced by ptmalloc3 due to some bugs
  557: discovered in Solaris thread safe allocators (libmalloc and libumem) that
  558: are first fit class allocators. Solaris libmtmalloc works better and is
  559: a best fit class allocator but its performance is poor than ptmalloc3
  560: performance;
  561: - major bug is fixed in ROW+ intrinsic (new row was not added where it
  562: should);
  563: - minor bugs are fixed in interruptions.c (semaphores values when error is
  564: caught);
  565: - major bug is fixed in STOP intrinsic. STOP was unable to stop any process
  566: created by SPAWN;
  567: - SIGFABORT is added. When process receives SIGFSTOP, it tries to execute
  568: ATEXIT. If it receives SIGFABORT, it does not;
  569: - ONEXIT is renamed in ATEXIT;
  570: - ONEXIT new intrinsic is added.
  571: * Wed Apr 21 2010 BERTRAND JoŽl <rpl@systella.fr> rpl-4.0.14 (RPL/2)

  573: This bug only occurs when RPL/2 tries to create a shared or static variable
  574: from an expression;
  575: - major bug is fixed in copie_etat_processus(). A field that contains
  576: information about shared variable was not copied to new processus structure;
  577: - some little memory leaks are fixed in evaluation(), recherche_type() and
  578: sequenceur(). They only occured when syntax error were caught;
  579: - IMPLICIT causes execution error instead system error;
  580: - Hurd support is improved but currently broken because Hurd does not support
  581: SIG_INFO. Work in progress;
  582: - OpenBSD specific support is removed from sources;
  583: - support for Mac OS X and Windows/Cygwin is added.

  677: - minor bug is fixed in DAEMON intrinsic. When a program was daemonized, all
  678: signals sent to main process were not caught because DAEMON did not replace
  679: old pid by new one;
  680: - major bug is fixed in IFERR/THEN/ELSE/END. Only occurs in expression

  718: - double free is fixed in liberation() (type SQL, only occurs when locale is
  719: set);
  720: - LOCALIZATION, UCASE and LCASE are added;
  721: - major bug is fixed in EXIT intrinsic that was able to return a false
  722: execution error in compiled scripts (only in DO/UNTIL and REPEAT/WHILE loops);
  723: - major bug is fixed in wrapper_instruction_intrinseque(). When intrinsic() was
  724: used in onLoading from shared library, USE was pushed on stack as algebraic
  725: expression;
  726: - libiconv is upgraded to 1.13.1;
  727: - gnuplot is upgraded to 4.2.6;
  728: - gsl is upgraded to 1.13.
  729: * Mon Sep 28 2009 BERTRAND JoŽl <rpl@systella.fr> rpl-4.0.6 (RPL/2)
  730: - pipe() is overwritten by a macro to avoid a system error. Communication
  731: between process are done with pipes and these pipes are managed by a
  732: specific asynchrone thread. If a script try to create more threads than
  733: management thread can destroy, you can quickly achieve maximum number of
  734: opened files and pipe() shall return a system error. This macro tries to create
  735: pipes. If pipe() function returns an error, macro waits and retries. If
  736: number of retries is greater than a hardcoded value, macro returns an error;
  737: - major bug (deadlock) is fixed in process and thread management. I hope
  738: this bug shall be the last one;
  739: - major bug is fixed in DET intrinsic (determinant was computed without LU
  740: diagonalization);
  741: - SWAPCNTXT is added;
  742: - minor bug is fixed in Makefile.am (licences rule).
  743: * Wed Sep 09 2009 BERTRAND JoŽl <rpl@systella.fr> rpl-4.0.5 (RPL/2)
  744: - some bugfixes are added in process management;
  745: - all process management is rewritten to avoid usage of defunct process
  746: or thread number;
  747: - new major bug is fixed in interruptions.c. Sometimes, when retrait_thread()
  748: was called before a pending interruption5 (SIGFSTOP), signal handler uses
  749: a freed semaphore and corrupts heap;
  750: - CLRERR is added to erase previous errors;
  751: - ERRN and ERRM return exception message and number;
  752: - major bug is fixed in interruptions.c. All signal are now bufferised
  753: when semaphore_liste_threads is null to avoid deadlock. This bug only
  754: occured when STOP was sent to a dying thread or process (when this thread or
  755: process was running retrait_thread());
  756: - matrix rank is computed before matrix inversion;
  757: - file locks are added to stdin and stdout. stderr is not locked because
  758: all messages written by signal handlers are sent to stderr;
  759: - configure.in script is modified to test gcc version and avoid a bug in
  760: gcc older than 4.4;
  761: - some benchmarks have been done :

  806: - minor bug is fixed in WRITE (SIGPIPE is ignored to catch error without
  807: process termination);
  808: - major bug is fixed in FUSE intrinsic (FUSE kills itself and do not kill
  809: its parent);
  810: - a mutex to protect fork() syscall is added;
  811: - all mutexes are unlocked after fork() in DETACH;
  812: - minor bug (double free corruption) is fixed in CLOSE intrinsic;

  833: SIGFSTP (with a nullified siginfo structure) instead of SIGHUP when control
  834: process is killed;
  835: - abs() macro is modified to avoid multiple evaluation. Your C compiler has to
  836: know typeof() intrinsic function. This function is not standard but exists
  837: under Sun Studio, gcc, and maybe some others compilers. If this function does
  838: not exist on your compiler, you can change its definition by old one in
  839: src/rpl.h;
  840: - fflush() can now be interrupted by signal (SunOS);

  862: deadlock when a huge amount of threads is launched);
  863: - minor bug is fixed in boath START and FOR intrinsic. Only occurs when
  864: arguments types are unsupported;
  865: - PLOT instrinsic is added (usage: LINE and MARK do not draw anything. All

  880: static variable that is shared by multiple threads;
  881: - '->' intrinsic is improved. All object copies have been avoided;
  882: - -n flag is added to catch HUP signal. stderr and stdout are redirected
  883: to a file, stdin is redirected to /dev/null when control process is killed;
  884: - a mutex is added to each object (before this modification,
  885: RPL/2 used a global mutex and performances in multithreaded programs were very
  886: poor.);

  901: that all programs that worked with old SQL intrinsic can now work with
  902: SQLQUERY. With all new programs, you can open a real connection to databases;
  903: - NRPROC is added. This new intrinsic is used to catch error from child
  904: process. Without NRPROC, any errors returned by child process cause
  905: main process to abort;
  906: - SPAWN is added. This new intrinsic is used to launch a new thread (DETACH
  907: starts a new process). There are no mutexes in RPL/2 because all spawned process
  908: use specific context. Nevertheless, shared variables and associated mutexes
  909: should be added;
  910: - -D flag and DAEMONIZE intrinsic have been added;
  911: - REPEAT, THEN, ELSE and ELSEIF intrinsics are rewritten to be more efficient;

 1203: - HELP function is rewritten to be more friendly (a la OpenVMS);
 1204: - external wrapper (rplplot) is written to force usage of gnuplot provided
 1205: by RPL/2 if it is built during build process. If this build does not exist,
 1206: it tries to launch regular gnuplot;
 1207: - gnuplot is added to source tree to avoid some trouble between preinstalled
 1208: gnuplot and release used by RPL/2. This addition to source tree is
 1209: required by some incompatibility between gnuplot releases;

 1588: - NOT is not correctly formatted in formateur.c:
 1589: Z NOT -> 'NOT Z' but 'A+Z' NOT -> 'NOT A+Z' and 'NOT Z+A' -> 'NOTZ+A'
 1590: with a NOTZ function !
 1591: * Sun Aug 10 2003 BERTRAND JoŽl <rpl2@systella.fr> rpl-4.00pre7c (RPL/2)

 1594: - RPL/2 is tested with efence and valgrind;
 1595: - configure.in script is modified;
 1596: - units.c is modified to be built by gcc-3.3. I only have removed a #if 0/#endif

 1657: appear on the same figure). The same mistake is fixed in DRWS intrinsic;
 1658: - LAST is disabled in evaluation subroutine (EVAL and ->NUM intrinsics).
 1659: * Sun May 18 2003 BERTRAND JoŽl <rpl2@systella.fr> rpl-4.00pre6j (RPL/2)

 1676: - SCLS is added;
 1677: - DRWS now uses COLS to draw 2D graphics;
 1678: - PPAR and SPAR are written. SPAR returns a list that contains the

 1680: statistical variable, or "DISABLED" if its type is not one of the type of
 1681: a statistical matrix.) and XCOL and YCOL parameters. Warning: [[]] SIZE
 1682: returns { 1 0 } and it is not a bug, because a null matrix contains _one_
 1683: null line ! Thus, [[]] STOS SPAR returns { { 1 0 } 1 2 };
 1684: - EXTERNAL intrinsic is added. Warning: by default, extern functions are
 1685: disabled. Arguments of EXTERNAL are case sensitive because the external
 1686: interface is written in C. { ext_sinus } EXTERNAL does not replace the list
 1687: of known external functions but add the new list to the last. { "all" }
 1688: EXTERNAL allows all external functions and { "none" } EXTERNAL removes all
 1689: external names of the known functions;
 1690: - mkrplso.in is modified.
 1691: * Sun Apr 20 2003 BERTRAND JoŽl <rpl2@systella.fr> rpl-4.00pre6h (RPL/2)
 1692: - vim syntax file is upgraded;
 1693: - a minor mistake is fixed in recherche_instruction_suivante();
 1694: - some minor memory leaks are fixed in recherche_type() function. They only

 1704: - a very minor bug is fixed in VISIT intrinsic. It only occurs when
 1705: VISIT does not find a name in level 1;
 1706: - configure.in script is modified to add a new test (--enable-debug
 1707: flag). Configured with this fleg, RPL/2 will be built with electric-fences;
 1708: - GETR (get row[s]) and GETC (get column[s]) are added. These new instructions
 1709: extract a part of a matrix. Syntax: [[ 1 2 3 ][ 2 3 4 ]] { 1 } GETR or
 1710: 'MATRIX' { 2 2 3 } GETR;
 1711: - LOGSCALE intrinsic is improved and now, it can be used as
 1712: { "main" "auxiliary" X Y } LOGSCALE;
 1713: - SCALE intrinsic is used to fix the limits of a graphic. Its syntax is the
 1714: same than AXES:
 1715: { { 60 "ticsonly" 2 } { "automatic" "ticsonly" 10 } } axes
 1716: { "auxiliary" { 60 "ticsonly" "default" } { "automatic" } } axes
 1717: { { -10 10 } "automatic" } SCALE.
 1718: Warning, it is not possible to ask a logarithmic scale with this intrinsic
 1719: because it changes only the dimension of the screen. To have a logarithmic
 1720: scale, you must use LOGSCALE intrinsic:
 1721: { X } LOGSCALE gives a semi-log screen, { "auxiliary" X Y } gives a log-log
 1722: screen on second scale;
 1723: - { X X } autoscale and { Y Y } logscale are now invalid;
 1724: - *D is added (depth multiplication, for 3D graphics);
 1725: - a new intrinsic (*S) is added. It changes the scale of a graphic (X, Y
 1726: and Z axes). The result of *S is the same than DUP DUP *H *W *D;
 1727: - a major bug is fixed in GETI instrinsic when it is used with a name
 1728: that contains a matrix or a vector (bad upper bounds conditions in
 1729: incrementation);
 1730: - DISP intrinsic now uses the 33-th flag. When it is not set
 1731: (default), a final carriage return is sent to the terminal;
 1732: - AXES intrinsic only takes a list that can contains the keywork
 1733: "main" or "auxiliary". Before this modification, this keyword was in
 1734: the first stack level;
 1735: - vim syntax file is upgraded;
 1736: - in appel_gnuplot(), stdin is closed when gnuplot is called with -raise
 1737: option;
 1738: - LAST is now disabled in the main loop of INT intrinsic;
 1739: - expm1 and lnp1 are rewritten to use expm1 and log1p from math.h.
 1740: * Sun Apr 6 2003 BERTRAND JoŽl <rpl2@systella.fr> rpl-4.00pre6f (RPL/2)
 1741: - a major bug is fixed in evaluation() subroutine. It occurs with DRAW
 1742: intrinsic when the equation cannot be evaluated (for example 'SIN(X)/X'
 1743: in 0);
 1744: - LAST is disabled in the main loop of DRAW intrinsic;
 1745: - a major bug is fixed in DRAW intrinsic. When an error occurs in the
 1746: evaluation of an equation, the system stack is returned corrupted to the
 1747: sequencer;
 1748: - the same minor bug is fixed in FOR and START. It only occurs when the limits
 1749: of a loop are not integer or real.
 1750: * Sun Mar 31 2003 BERTRAND JoŽl <rpl2@systella.fr> rpl-4.00pre6e (RPL/2)

 1752: have the same name. To improve the compilation() subroutine, I have to
 1753: add some tests in gestion_variables.c;
 1754: - recherche_type() subroutine ad some other connex subroutines are improved.
 1755: Now, some syntax errors about object are caught and do not perform sequencer
 1756: hangup;

 1758: - Makefile.am's and configure.in scripts are improved.
 1759: * Fri Mar 14 2003 BERTRAND JoŽl <rpl2@systella.fr> rpl-4.00pre6d (RPL/2)
 1760: - DRWS intrinsic is written. Two datastyles are associated: SCATTER (2D
 1761: and 3D) and HISTOGRAM (only 2D, but 3 columns are accepted, the third shown
 1762: the boxwidth, 1 by default);
 1763: - recherche_type() is rewritten to be faster;
 1764: - gsl is upgraded (release 1.3);
 1765: - ncurses is upgraded and patched (release 5.3);
 1766: - recherche_instruction_suivante() is fixed (string research with included
 1767: '"') and rewritten to be faster;

 1778: - a minor bug is fixed in evaluation subroutine;
 1779: - vim syntax file is improved;
 1780: - DRAW (wireframe section) is fixed. When an error occurs in the evaluation
 1781: of a 3D-graphic (for example 'SIN(R)/R' with 'R=SQRT(X**2+Y**2)' in X=0 and
 1782: Y=0), no graph was procuced (it results from a bug in gnuplot, and this fix
 1783: is a quick and dirty workaround...);
 1784: - RETURN intrinsic is modified to fix a trouble in interactive mode;
 1785: - rplconvert is improved.
 1786: * Sun Dec 22 2002 BERTRAND JoŽl <rpl2@systella.fr> rpl-4.00pre6a (RPL/2)
